Jean Baptiste Henry was born about 1727, the son of Germain Henry and Cécile Deveau.

He was listed in the 1752 La Roque census at Port La Joye, age 25, with his parents and siblings.[1]

He married Isabelle Pitre on Feb 12, 1753, the same day his brother Pierre married Marguerite Trahan, and two other couples (brother and sisters) were married the same day as well.[2]

Jean and his family were deported to France in 1758. They were on the list of arrivals in St-Malo, France, in the roll of the Duke William which disembarked on 1 Nov 1758. Their 3 young children, Gabriel Armand, Pierre, and Marie, perished at sea during the crossing.[3]

Jean Henry passed away soon after, on March 9, 1759 in St-Servan, Bretagne, France at the age of 33 years [4]
